Why Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation is the “Gold Standard” in Hair Transplantation
In recent years however, a handful of hair transplant physicians such as those who are members of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Surgeons have improved their techniques and tools used in order to perform regular larger sessions of ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation.
Larger hair transplant megasessions give hair transplant surgeons the capability of restoring a hair transplant patient’s hair in only one or two hair transplant procedures. With ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation, minimally invasive incisions made in the balding regions allow a hair restoration physician to dense pack transplanted hair very close together while minimizing surgical trauma to the scalp. A few recently posted examples from our hair restoration discussion forum are below.
This hair transplant patient received 3750 follicular unit grafts with Dr. Alan Feller of NY in a single session using ultra refined follicular unit grafting, significantly improving his cosmetic appearance in only one hair transplant procedure. Being that this hair loss patient is only at 5.5 months after hair restoration surgery, he will continue to see a lot of new hair growth and thickening of the transplanted hair. Notice how densely packed the transplanted hair is together in the immediately postoperative hair transplant pictures.
Dr. Scott Alexander of AZ performed a 2600 ultra refined follicular unit graft hair transplant procedure on this hair transplant patient producing a solid and very natural cosmetic improvement. Because Dr. Alexander was covering a larger balding area, the follicular unit grafts were not as densely packed – however, given the hair transplant patient’s hair characteristics, not as much hair density was required to create a proper illusion of hair density.
